  1. Ah okay so the disc is part of the big red upgrade kit.... I'll speak to some porsche parts places here and find out how much the disc will be..... Thanks again for all your help.... hopefully that'll be the last question I ask :) Cheers Duncan
  2. Hi JPA Thanks for the info.... I realise they will fit as you've mentioned however the price tag of $1,000 is putting me off a little bit.... was trying to come up with a cheaper solution. The people in the UK's suggestion was if I wanted to use the S rotors I'd need to replace the other bits.... as they don't sell modified rotors. I'll stop bugging you now and get it sorted either way. :) Cheers Duncan
  3. Okay sorry I have another question.... the shipping on the rotors came in at $295.... although they have offer to reduce the cost of the discs to allow for this... I'm still debating this in my head. I have however had an e-mail this morning with another suggestion by a Porsche specialist in the UK as follows..... Duncan, You need to use the complete S upright/disc/handbrake assembly on the rear because the discs are a different offset and the 2.5 has a smaller diameter handbrake assembly. It is possible to "fiddle" the S caliper onto the stock 2.5 disc but I do not believe
  4. Thanks very much for the info I contacted them and finally got a straight answer!!! The rotors cost $495 each I'm just waiting to find out how much the shipping to th UK is to decide if I'm going to go ahead with it....... This may be a really stupid question but..... Do you know if I can use a standard disc with the S rear calipers? Thanks again for your help. Duncan
  5. Sorry me again I'm getting differing views on this.... can anyone please please tell me if this conversion is possible..... I'm really confused and don't want to go to the expensive of buying the rest of the parts only to find the rears don't fit. Has anyone done this conversion and if so did you have to use any special parts? So far I've had a few places say easy change.... and others say not sure never tried.... and others say no!!!! Didn't realise it would be so hard!! :( So far I've.... E-mailed Brembo (no response) Spoken to local Porsche dealer in UK (no conversion kit avai
  6. I realise it's in the UK and may be expensive to ship to the US but these guys do the Bose rear unit for the 986. I bought a unit from them a while ago.... but then i am in the UK :) http://www.design911.co.uk/ Hope it helps Cheers Duncan
  7. I thought that too the guy worked for porsche in Italy and the lights came off a RHD car..... I realise that you can switch the litronic units between LHD and RHD my guess is the switch doesn't give you exactly what you would get with the LHD specific and is therefore against the law in Italy he therefore got a set of LHD specific lits and put the bulbs in those to save the customer money.... that's my guess anyway. Lights look brand new came very well packaged in Porsche boxes theres no marks on the units at all so fingers crossed. Got them for approx USD300 found a pair of D2S bulbs fo
  8. Yep that's right TP I'm from Guernsey... although I've just moved over to England and I must say the cars loving the increased speed limit (Guernsey's limited to 35mph!!). Thanks very much for the info that's a great help.... just to confirm I can simply plug and play the new lights without have to modify the wiring? VFXBOX - I bought the lights knowing I'd have to buy the bulbs he clearly stated it in the e-bay ad so no surprises... thanks for the concern. Cheers Duncan
  9. Hi there I've just pick up a cheap set of litronic headlights on e-bay that came without any bulbs. My question is what bulbs do I need is it just a pair of xenons for the main beams i.e. can I use any of the bulbs I currently have in my stock head lamps? Or do I need lots of new bulbs? Where is the cheapest place to source them from? Also is there anything I need for retro fitting to my 99 Boxster? I don't need the headlamp wash or the levelling kit. Thanks for your help. Duncan
  10. Hi there Thanks very much for your help everyone. JFP is this a conversion you have done? Do you have the part numbers for the brembo rotors? Cheers Duncan
  11. Hi there I was wondering if someone could confirm this for me please. I'm looking to put a set of S brakes on my 99 Boxster. I believe the only thing i need is 17" or above rims (I have 18's) for the addtional size of calipers/discs?? Is this correct will the S calipers and discs fit directly to my car? Thanks in advance for your help Regards Duncan
